I've wanted a tattoo for about 10 years but I've no idea on what to get done, I keep on seeing things I kinda like on other people but I don't want to get something someone else has really.

I would like to get the names of my two sons on me somewhere but no idea where or what I want it to look like.

I've also never looked into getting one done so I've no idea even how to go about getting one.

Go into a studio and ask to look at script if you want writing done, see what you like or what fits the names and go from there :)

And for anything else if you see something you like or 3 things you like that might fit together contact a studio and explain to the artist elements you like and let them design something for you if you dont want to pick something out of a book or get something someone else has already.

Where abouts are you based in Scotland btw +unabatedshagie?

That looks really nice. Based on a engraving I take?

Based on the medallion we all got during Paratrooper training in the Army, St. Michael, the artist took a bad drawing and made this from it, it was originally to be more intricate and have color, but we both agreed that simplicity was the best option

I agree. It really looks marvelous.

One ususally is more neutral about his own ink so believe me, your's gave me tattoo envy.

I don't have any tattoos yet. I plan on getting on with my sons full name in the shape of a B (his name is Brantley). But I'd like to get more, either to encircle it, or bring focus to it (almost like the B is a power core). I am not very creative though, I know what I like when I see it. kind of want something 3d-ish / abstract.

Going to go on my forearm, so easily covered w/ a long sleeve shirt.

If anyone has any ideas.. ;)

currently awaiting my first appointment for my first tattoo, Gf has 1 on her left wrist black scroll & bluebell flowers, just paid the last amount for her next tatt for next month.

Shes wanting a sugar skull based one done, in memory of her dad who passed away last month. Going to cover her entire left forearm (inside)......

similar to http://inkarttattoos...kull-maiden.jpg

but with thistles or similar instead of the roses, dependant on wether or not the inkmaster can do it.

Im currently saving for my first, I want a Giger-esque left sleeve based on Li L

http://www.giger.cz/.../image_Li_I.jpg

@sanctified....sorry did you say all your tats are self done? as in you ink yourself? If so that's doubly impressive as they are sooo sharp, how the F do you tatt your "writing hand" so sharply???
